SarahJane Cauzillo Mission Trip

My name is SarahJane Cauzillo, and my family and I have been parishioners of St. Colette for about 15 years. I received almost all of my Sacraments through this faith community, and I am happy to consider this parish home.

This coming January, I will be embarking on two years of mission work in Cochabamba, Bolivia with Franciscan Mission Service (FMS). FMS is a Catholic lay mission nonprofit organization that focuses on practicing a ministry of presence and living in solidarity with those on the margins. In the spirits of St. Francis and St. Clare, I will seek to accompany in love and serve by walking alongside those in the community I live with in Bolivia.

While living here for the next two years, I will have incredible opportunities to pursue my passions of accompanying women on the margins. Some of these ministry possibilities include: women’s prison ministry; working at a home for young girls who have faced abuse; and/or aiding a nonprofit health foundation in the rural areas outside Cochabamba.

I am ecstatic about this work, and I would love for my home parish to join me—that’s you! Part of this mission includes the responsibility to raise $16,000 towards the mission. I invite you to learn more about another country and culture, deepen your faith through people’s stories, and gain a better understanding about social injustices that different communities face around the world by supporting this mission with Franciscan Mission Service.
